Our web guiding system, ARIS, features the latest in web guiding technology. It adapts to any material, requires no calibration, and is very simple to set-up. Now, it features a comprehensive guiding sensor that can be used in any kind of sensing including edge, line, contrast, composite or layered web detection.
In this video, we use two web guides as a test machine to introduce several speeds and disturbance frequencies. One web guide creates the disturbance, while one corrects this disturbance. This test lets us evaluate how our machine adjusts to these disturbances. This video shows contrast guiding of composite web where web is guided based on die-cut of a label. ARIS web guides can work with continuous, intermittent lines or contrasted edges.
Our edge sensor detects the web edge position of any materials used without the need for manual adjustments.
The previous version of our sensor used the reflection of infrared light to take a picture of the edge of the material. This picture is then processed using digital signal processing algorithms to accurately sense the true position of the material irrespective of its physical properties.
The updated version is more comprehensive and uses white light to take a picture of the web materials and in the line detection mode, the sensor can handle a solid or intermittent line, or even a contrast between two different materials.
The bar at the top shows the disturbance coming upstream of the sensor. The bar at the bottom shows the disturbance being corrected downstream. As you can see in this video, the guide is unaffected by missing labels.
The use of fiber optic technology eliminates a need for focusing and eliminates need for calibration and technology.
Our tests have shown our sensing technology automatically works with materials of varying contrasts without any teaching or calibration.
There are details on these experiments are available in our white papers. You can find a link in our description below.
